I caught this fat spider with a daddy longlegs last week on a sunny day..
All one handed macro shots while holding on to a fence post to lean in without getting a facefull of web..
I haven`t been around for a while, just very very busy sorting things out, scrapped the old van and with all the fundraising got Dan his Van (v5) we`re loving it, power steering for me and comfort for Daniel to get to wheelchair appointments etc, hopefully one more visit and it will be sorted.. But still been finding time to snap a few bugs (not a good year for bugs in my garden)

A super set of arachnid images to herald your return Bun, the detail is awesome. I bet you are pleased with your new blue van, I'm sure you've been zipping around the country lanes on the Devon/Cornwall border in it already!Grin

I am so pleased to see you managed to get your van - what a beauty, you must be thrilled! Smile

The images are wonderful, I especially like seeing the pattern on her back in version 3.

Magnificent macro. Surely as crisp and clear a shot with a Lumix as some of the
very expensive speciality macro lens.
